Thank you for submitting your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 110.78942891 gas dryer

Caution: Before attempting any repair, unplug the dryer from the wall electrical outlet. 

When a gas dryer runs but doesn't heat the key to determining the cause of the no heat problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing.  You can remove the lower access panel to visually check if the ignitor glows or not.  The image below will help you remove the access panel. 

If the ignitor is not glowing when the dryer is running the most likely cause of the ignitor not glowing is a bad thermal fuse. 

The thermal fuse can be checked with or without a meter.  If you have no meter to check the thermal fuse let me know and I'll tell you the trick to checking the thermal fuse without a meter. 

I hope this helps. You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. Since the new igniter is not glowing, you could be experiencing an issue with a blown thermal fuse (3390719, key #59), bad high limit thermostat (3403140, key #43), bad thermistor (8577274, key #42) or a bad flame sensor (338906, key #48). You can view the location of these parts on this diagram. You'll want to test these parts for porper continuity with an ohms/volt meter to see which has failed. Here is the wiring diagram for your dryer. Please ignore the bold and circled items on this diagram. The diagram shows the components discussed above. To check these components, unplug the dryer and I recommend checking the thermal fuse first. You'll want to get a reading of zero ohms for all the compnents except for the thermistor. For the thermistor you'll want to get an ohms reading of 12K ohms (12,000 ohms). If the thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. Be sure that you check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home if the thermal fuse was blown. The fuse will continue to blown until the venting is clear from all lint and debris. If the thermal fuse is okay, then check the other components provided above. I hope this helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
